Thursday Injury Report
Several Seahawks players continue to miss practice as 10 players were unavailable for the first practice of the week. Despite the large number of players missing practice, Seahawks head coach remains optimistic that a few of the players will return to action for Monday night. "We should be a little bit healthier this week, we'll see," said coach Carroll. "We have to make it through the week, but we do have some guys coming back to action."
One player who could be returning this week is safety Jamal Adams who hasn't played in over a year due to a quadriceps injury. The All-Pro has been practicing for a couple of weeks now and is set to make his season debut at MetLife Stadium, a place he is very familiar with. "I'm so happy for Jamal, he gets to get back to football and playing again," said coach Carroll. "I did make note, Jordyn (Brooks) was sitting with Jamal as we were getting ready for walkthrough; those two guys really fed off each other throughout the time when we got back to camp here. Competed and challenged and went head-to-head to make it back. It's a good moment that these guys get to play together this week."
Adams fully participated in Thursday's practice along with cornerback Riq Woolen who missed the win over Carolina in Week 3 due to a chest injury he suffered in Week 2. Woolen could return for Monday night if he makes it through the week okay. Even with those two players fully participating in practice, the secondary is still banged up. Cornerback Tre Brown (concussion), cornerback/safety Coby Bryant (toe) and safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring) all missed practice due to injuries. Diggs has been dealing with a hamstring issue since last week but was able to suit up against the Panthers.
Jarran Reed was able to not only play last Sunday, but also have a very strong performance despite dealing with a groin issue. The nose tackle is now dealing with a quadricep injury and missed practice because of it. Another key member of the defensive line that missed practice today was Dre'Mont Jones who suffered a hip injury last week.
Two starting offensive linemen remained out of practice as tackle Charles Cross and guard Phil Haynes missed practice to start the week. Cross has been out since injuring his toe in Week 1 while Haynes was held out of the Carolina game due to a calf ailment.
The New York Giants have been dealing with a few injuries as well but seem to be getting healthier. Star running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and All-Pro left tackle Andrew Thomas (hamstring) have missed some time due to injuries but were able to practice on Thursday in a limited capacity.
